Due to the rapid adoption of its broadband services, Kazakhtelecom is expanding the capacity and increasing the scalability of their network. The majority of Kazakhtelecom’s current customers are businesses. However, with the increase in the adoption of consumer broadband services, the company needed to expand capacity and scalability. The upgraded network is designed to offer residential broadband as well as business services such as ATM, leased line, and Ethernet services. MPLS virtual private networks as well as other value-added services are also expected to be offered over the same network.

“Kazakhstan has a burgeoning economy with a focus on high-tech and next-generation telecommunications services,” said Dr. Ray Mota, chief strategist of Synergy Research Group. “Our research shows that Redback’s SmartEdge family of multi-service edge routers is differentiated by its ability to consolidate multiple IP services onto a single network,” he continues. “With over 150 service provider customers today, the SmartEdge router has proven to be flexible, scalable and reliable, enabling service providers to lay the foundation for rapid and cost-effective delivery of next-generation business and consumer services, including IPTV, on-line gaming, virtual private networks and Voice over IP.”

Redback’s SmartEdge family of multi-service edge routers provides carrier-class routing as well as advanced subscriber management, creating a converged IP network that simplifies overall network operations and traffic control for Kazakhtelecom. Kazakhtelecom also expects to take advantage of the SmartEdge routers’ hierarchical quality of service (QoS) capabilities to offer multiple levels of services to its corporate clients and deploy new next-generation broadband services to residential customers in the future.

“With the power of our SmartEdge platform, we are enabling service providers like Kazakhtelecom to deliver high-speed, high-performance IP-based broadband services to customers who are demanding next-generation entertainment and communications,” said Magnus Almquist, vice president of sales and operations for EMEA at Redback. “As Kazakhtelecom is already providing most of the residential telephony services in Kazakhstan, the SmartEdge deployment should help them converge their multiple networks and simplify operations.”
